A report of 31 Canada goose at ice bound Bryn Bach Park got me on the road mid morning in the hope of a bit of ring spotting. Once again I dipped out as no geese were present, back then to Dunlop Semtex Pond. Thanks to the efforts of litter bugs there was no shortage of items to keep the local industrious Herring gulls occupied. This bird was entertaining itself with a discarded lighter.
Further to my recent blog enter about colour ringing, a touch of web research has turned up a good number of gull study groups both in the UK and all over Europe. I will add links to the best sites in due course.
